National Robotics Week is an annual week dedicated to celebrate the US as a leader in robotics technology development. Currently, the week is in progress and is in its seventh year. More importantly than just celebrating advancements is the goal of educating the public as to how robotics technology impacts society both now and in the future. As there is a growing number of careers dedicated to STEM, there must be individuals to fill that role, which is primarily why the week seeks to increase funding for research and development while inspiring students to pursue careers in STEM related fields (National Robotics Week, 2016).
Over the last 10 years, there has been considerable progress in the area of robotics advancement. Just to provide an overview of what the decade has produced, check out the list below for a quick snapshot of the incredible breakthroughs scientists have made in technology in the last several yeras, more specifically in robotics technology (Ang, 2013):
The dedicated research scientists have conducted over the last several years is remarkable. To bring these robots “to life” takes a considerable amount of dedicated effort, innovation, and ingenuity. PCS wants kids to have their own opportunity to experience this kind of interaction and has done so through its development of their own robot, RiQ. RiQ is a great way to get students excited about robotics and to experiment with STEM. The last decade has brought tremendous promise in the field of robotics and it will be interesting (to say the least) as to what the future holds in this endeavor and so many other STEM fields.
